Good Mystery by S. S. Van Dine
26 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A good mystery by S. S. Van Dine. If you are a mystery buff, then you will enjoy the story line. Please remember that this was filmed by Vitaphone in 1932, so the acting is a bit wooden. One gets the impression that the cast probably thinks that microphones are near them, so that the dialogue is a bit more emoting than speaking. If it was filmed three years later this short would probably get an 8 from the viewing audience. Donald Meek, Neil Hamilton and Douglas Dumbrille later in their careers prove this point. Reference Donald Meek in the Nick Carter series. Reference Neil Hamilton in his many character roles through television. Douglas Dumbrille reprises his usual roles, see CASTLE IN THE DESERT and THE BIG STORE. If you can sit back and overlook the vintage of the filming, enjoy a good murder mystery.
